LaserShip and Team Bernon raise more than $7,000 for the Best Buddies Friendship Walk taking place Sept. 23 in Cleveland, Ohio.
OHIO — Sept. 22, 2021 — LaserShip, an e-commerce parcel carrier servicing the Eastern and Midwest U.S., announced today its sponsorship of Best Buddies’ Friendship Walk. The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 23 at the Gateway Plaza in Cleveland, Ohio.
“This is an amazing charity and great cause, and I’m so proud to support an organization that’s dedicated to creating friendships and employment for people with IDD. Everyone needs a friend,” said Joe Bernon, chief operating officer of LaserShip. Joe and his wife, Mara, have been supporting Best Buddies for more than 20 years. This year, Team Bernon and LaserShip have helped raise more than $7,000 for the Friendship Walk.
The annual event is hosted by Best Buddies International, a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Funds raised through the Best Buddies Friendship Walk will provide the necessary tools for people with IDD to become more independent and valued members of society. This is LaserShip’s second consecutive year sponsoring the walk.
